On a national scale, Pomorskie is distinguished by clean air and broad actions in aid of ecology, and what’s important, a well-developed tourist infrastructure exposes to visitors various charms of nature, all the while respecting its rights and needs.
There would not be so many well-preserved ecosystems in Pomorskie if it wasn’t for the numerous environmental protection areas, which cover an area of nearly 600,000 hectares, which constitutes almost 1/3 of the whole voivodeship. Amateurs of communing with wildlife will find two national parks (Słowiński, Bory Tucholskie), as well as eleven landscape parks and 134 nature reserves, covering the whole region with their network. All this creates a huge potential for nature tourism, which in the era of digitalization and urbanization is experiencing its renaissance in spite of the times.
